Pros

Great engineering minds and wonderful resources.

The leadership was leading the way in the wrong direction for over a decade. Google has been trying to change that, but it will take time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to do something to help employee moral.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time

    Pros

    The few employees that remain do care about each other

    Cons

    There is no corporate culture left after so many layoffs. Pervasive feeling of stress, sense this is the last chance, and growing belief that Google is going to take the IP and kill off the rest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The few long time Motorola managers that are left are retired in place, just hanging on for those last few months. New managers coming in are not being attuned to a vision or taught to care about team building. When in consumer products, you need teams.

    I worked at Motorola Mobility full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    At one time, Motorola was synonymous with technological innovation. It also was the birthplace of Six Sigma.

    Cons

    As much as they tried to change it, the culture of “warring tribes” persisted. Engineers running the company, not business people. Even though they invented it, Six Sigma was "re-introduced" on 3 separate occasions. They lost their business (and moral) compass.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None at this time... as there is not much left.
